Stewed Plums and Decorating

I have a great neighbor that shares produce with us all the time. We REALLY appreciate it!! Last week she gave us a bag of plums. She has given us plums every year and we have just tried to eat them before they went bad. This time I searched the internet to find a good way to preserve them. I came up this idea:

Stewed Plums -- I filled my crockpot up with quartered plums. I added 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, 1 cup of sugar and 2 tbls of corn starch mixed combined with a cup of cold water. I cooked it on low for about 4 hours.

They turned out really good. I froze some and then also froze the sauce that was leftover in the crockpot. We ate some for dessert with whipped cream. The kids liked it. Can your tell?

Remember these shelves? They are finally hanging. But I need decoration help!!

The bears and plate I got at yard sales. The fire extinguisher is from 1973 - before I was born. I got it at my grandma's house. The meat grinder and shifter were my grandma's.I found this wine bottle at grandma's too! I have been trying to figure out how old it is? Are there any wine experts out there???
